Of the hundreds of images submitted, thirty were selected by a national jury to be printed in large format, framed, and hung in a traveling show. Since opening in 2007 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science the exhibit has traveled to Colorado, Mexico and New York in science Art in Science | Science in Art is curated by Helen Macfarlane, MA and J.

Religion and evolution: why they still haven’t reconciled -   Dr. Jeff Kieft

Many mainstream religions have accepted the truth of evolution, and the world’s most trusted scientific bodies have stated that there is no inherent conflict between faith and evolutionary theory. Despite this apparent reconciliation, the battle lines are still drawn and they remain focused on ‘God vs. Darwin.’  Why?  Dr. Kieft has spoken about evolutionary theory and taught its importance at churches and community forums in Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri; in this presentation, he will present some of his observations, experiences, and thoughts as to why the argument continues.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the NIH Office of History.
